TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to R Winder, Belair, Bolton
Date20 November 1906
DescriptionIt might be possible to obtain assistance for the man he describes, if his claims are adjudged to have sufficient merit. Harrison does not clearly understand whether Winder wants to obtain means to prosecute his work in making films of the plants of coal measures, or whether he would propose him for a personal grant of the money of an eleemosynary character. The former would go before the Government Grant Committee, the latter would go before the Scientific Relief Committee. The most appropriate society to contact would be the Geological. Any full statement will be laid before President and Council.
